After a meeting with Neil Prince at Desertmartin on Saturday afternoon, the ACU has announced a short list of riders from which the 2013 MXoN team will be selected.
The final three will be chosen from, Elliott Banks-Browne, Kristian Whatley, Tommy Searle, Jake Nicholls, Shaun Simpson, Max Anstie and Mel Pocock. Team Manager Prince will be making his final choice around the time of the British Motocross Grand Prix at the end of August.
In his second year as Team Manager, Prince, who has a vast amount of GP knowledge (which forms the basis of the event) will use his experience in Team selection for the unique Teutschenthal circuit in the eastern part of Germany at the end of September.
ACU Motocross Chairman Brian Higgins commented, “The ACU are in agreement with the initial squad which Neil is working from. We have given him the job of being Team Manager so naturally it will be Neil’s sole choice as to the final three, taking into account many factors. Team GB have come so close to a podium finish in recent years, I am sure that very soon this will come, maybe this year in Germany.”
A Press Release will be issued with the final selection when the entry forms are sent to the FIM.
